Enlightened Expressions of McDonough

Perfect smiles are created with our trendsetting system, clinically proven to be unmatched in terms of safety and effectiveness. Enlightened Expressions uses pre-filled LED system mouth pieces that are specially designed for maximum comfort and focused LED targeting. Our special lighting systems intensify the release of hydroxyl radicals that accelerate the dissipation of tooth stains. The advanced spectrum LED light is precisely positioned and controlled. Its energy is directed outside of the clear mouth piece between the upper and lower teeth. This very safe, visible blue light works in conjunction with the Enlightened Expressions Whitening Gel to achieve extraordinary results. Our exclusive formula also cleans underneath the gums and between the teeth, ensuring a healthy bright smile.

 How does the Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening System work?

  • The Enlightened Expressions light-activated teeth whitening gel is Carbamide Peroxide. As the LED light system breaks down the gel, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances white - the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The LED lamp aids in activating the t peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.

How long does Enlightened Expressions In-Salon Whitening take?

  • The complete teeth whitening session takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening session, but not necessary.

Are there any side effects to Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening?

  • With teeth whitening, some clients experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold after the process. Also, some clients have experienced blanching-a temporary discoloration of the gums. This normally fades within 15 minutes after the process has been completed.

Is Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening safe?

  • Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening is not recommended for children under the age of 8 years old. Our products are FDA approved, bio-safe, and vegan friendly. 

Will Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening products work on everyone's teeth?

  • Almost all natural teeth will whiten with Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening products. Results will vary based on the type of stains. In general, yellow-tones teeth respond better to whitening products than gray-tones teeth.

How long do the results last?

  • By following some simple post teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be whiter than they were before. The length of time your teeth stay whiter is influenced by what you eat and drink, and if you smoke. Our clients should expect to have a brighter smile for 6-12 months. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend after care with Enlightened Expressions maintenance products.

How long before I can eat or drink after the Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening process?

  • The first 4-5 hours we recommend you avoid coffee, tea, dark colored sodas, red wines, berries, candy, red sauces, beets or any foods that have the potential to stain. Remember, if it has the possibility of staining a white tee shirt, it will most likely stain your teeth.

Is there any difference between over-the-counter teeth whiteners and Enlightened Expressions Teeth Whitening?

  • Yes! Over-the-counter teeth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpaste take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Enlightened Expressions is clinically proven to whiten your teeth 2-8 shades in 15-20 minutes!

 What causes white spots on teeth?

  • The white spots on your teeth were not caused by the whitening process. In fact, they were there before your teeth were whitened, but were not noticeable. They are areas of hypo-calcified enamel which whitens before the enamel. These spots will diminish over the next 24-48 hours and blend in with the surrounding enamel.
